many sports where you have to work certain muscles repetitively using the same amount of energy with each force against resistance. long distance sports such as cycling, marathon running and swimming are all muscular endurance activities. however, sports such as football and Rugby where you have to be able to control your endurance for a certain period of time, require this, as you will be constantly running.
All of them. Every athlete's performance can benefit from muscular strength.
Almost all sports need muscular strength of some type or form. For example even in running it is important to train the muscles of your legs. If you mean dense muscle, sports such as shot put and perhaps boxing are sports that require muscular strength.
in rugby and gymnastics.... but there are loads of sports you can use it in! :D
To Play Football the #1 physical attribute you need is endurance as its 90 minutes flat out running, 2 x 45 minute halfs. Look at a cyclist...or other sports with endurance, their body fits the requirements of the sport. Football players are extremely fit, conditioned to run up to 14k per game...any excess fat you will simply blow out and wont last beyond 10 minutes at a highly competitive game. Ronaldo of Brazil put on weight, now hes completely out of shape and cannot play football, whereas in nfl Gridiron for example a 2005 report found 56% were clinically obese. Football is largely based on skill...anyone can go into a gym and pile on muscle, take supplements...thats for the common man. Football is 80% skill with ball control...hence very few have the talent to make it. Strength is an asset in any competitive sport, or, more properly, a bit of extra strength. You already haves some, don't you? But you're considering adding more. Indeed, strength training is incorporated into the physical regimen of many athletic programs. But there is a trade off. That's the catch. (There's always a catch, isn't there?) Consider why a player might want more strength. What is that person gonna do with it? In football, it would be nice to be able to get a bit more distance on a throw in. Upper body strength would make that happen. After all, the throw in is all about some technique and a lot of upper body strength. It was pointed out that playing football well requires endurance. Don't know about you, but I don't wanna trade any endurance for strength. You will still have to do all your endurance training. You wanna trade skills training for strength training? I sure wouldn't. Football has a premium on several things, and skill is much higher on the list than strength. Oh, and it is critical to stay well stretched out, because strength training erodes our flexibility. I recall seeing an NFL Gridiron team being assessed, and a distressingly large percentage of the players weren't flexible enough for strength training and were put through stretching while the flexible players lifted weights. Stunning! These guys could rip your arm off and they're doing stretching exercises! Oh, and did you know that a player who is more stretched out and flexible suffers less injuries than one who is tight? Lastly, increasing muscle mass adds weight to your body. Will you still be as quick? As fast? Be able to jump as high for that header in the box? Strength training IS a good idea, but in a sport like football, it is of paramount importance to target that training and heavily weigh the cost of getting a bit more buffed out. Moderation in strength training is a strong recommendation. Good luck.
ZMA is a supplement used by sports athletes and bodybuilders to increase muscular growth and strength. It is comprised of zinc monomethionine, aspartate, and magnesium aspartate.
Mesomorphs are generally good as sport because they have an athletic build and muscular strength. Height is often the dominant factor that determines which sport they play.
all of them do
